Kara's Tapless Dance

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 16739)

This is a really fun set of tapless combinations! This is my first contribution to this site & I hope it is helpful to any fellow instructors. Turnstep.com has given me great ideas & inspiration! Thanks to everyone. My explanations are a bit wordy, but I was trying to be as clear as possible. Feel free to contact me if you have questions. All patterns are self-reversing! Thanks so much, Kara :)

Combo I

* (note: this explanation is when the whole combo was started on the left lead) right foot up starting to turn to face the back of the room (1), left foot up facing the back (2), lunge right foot down to floor (3), return right foot to step (4), lunge left foot to floor (5), return left foot to step (6), exit right foot down to floor while turning to face front of room (7), exit left foot to floor now facing front of room (8)

** right foot on step (1), kick left foot forward (2), left foot to floor (3), kick right foot back (4)... right foot will then go straight up onto bench for next move

Combo II

* right foot up on step turning to side (1), left foot up on step (2), right foot lunges to front of room (you are facing the back of room now) (3), right foot returns to step (4), left foot exits to floor facing front (5), right foot exits to floor facing front (6)

** like a normal L-step, except the second & third knees turn into side kicks

*** right foot up on bench turning to left side (1), left foot up on bench (2), lunge right foot to floor (front of room) (3), return right foot to step (&), lunge left foot to floor (back of room) (4), return left foot to step (&), repeat for a total of 5 speed lunges (right, left, right, left, right), exit left foot to floor facing front of room (9), exit right foot to floor facing front (10)

**** right foot up on step turning to face left front corner (1), left knee up (2), left foot to floor (3), walk right foot back on floor (4), walk left foot back on floor (5), right knee up (6), walk right foot forward toward bench (7), walk left foot forward (8)

Combo III

* right foot stomps bench while left foot picks up off floor (1), left foot to floor (2), right foot to floor (3), left foot stomps bench while right foot picks up off floor (4), right foot to floor (5), left foot to floor turning to face the left (6), right foot steps forward on floor (7), pivot on right foot (7) & place left foot back onto floor (8), step right foot forward on floor (heading back to bench) (9)

** step left foot up onto bench turning to face the right (1), step right foot on bench (2), march left foot (still on top of bench) (3), step right foot to floor facing the front (4), step left foot to floor (5)

*** a spin is just a basic step but turning in a full circle... so, right foot on bench turning to face back of room (1), left foot on bench facing back of room (2), return right foot to floor while turning to face front of room (3), return left foot to floor (4) (note: this is a counter-clockwise turn)

**** a power V-step is just a V-step where you hop both feet onto bench instead of stepping up... so, hop both feet onto bench (1, hold 2), step right down (3), step left down (4)
